Terrible
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Fort Dodge, IAJanuary 12, 2018
This company were only out for themselves. As a supervisor, I asked for assistance on more than one occasion to no avail. They wanted to get paid, but not look out for the best interest for their clients.

Loved my clients, worst administrative team I have ever seen
Personal Support Professional (Former Employee) –  Clear Lake, IANovember 14, 2017
The administration only cares about money. They don't care to see the clients doing well or the staff who work directly with the clients. Lack of appreciation.

Underpaid and overworked
Driver (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVOctober 9, 2017
When you clock in the mornings...
- get your work truck keys
- get your route sheets for the day
- load up your work truck with bins

During your route...
- jumping in and out of your work truck
- swapping filled bins with paper for empty ones or emptying console bags
- getting signatures on the route sheets for every stop

After your route...
- unload filled bins from your work truck
- weigh every bin and document it on the individual route sheets
- stage bin to be ready for shredding

Coworkers...
- have the facial expressions of not wanting to be there
- constantly complaining about being underpaid
- constantly complaining about being overworked
- constantly complaining about staffing shortages
- constantly complaining about there route for the day
- constantly complaining??

Management...
- person in charge seems very lackluster on department issues
- person in charge seems to neglect drivers/ drivers issues
- need to balance being professional with being human, engage in your staff, be personally involved and not with just there output

Conclusion...
- job can be very easy but the company’s policies and procedures make it hard on the entire staff of employees
- unrealistic routes with too many stops and not enough help
- they tolerate poor performance and permit weak links to exist with no consequences
- they treat everyone equally which shows your top performers no matter how high they perform they will be treated the same as the bozo who just punches the clock
- no room for advancement
- issues and concerns that arise within
  more... each department should be addressed but feels like they land on deaf ears
- drivers complaining about more pay should be addressed to upper management but it just lands on deaf ears
- drivers are the backbone of opportunity village but they are not treated as such with insufficient compensation and adequate staffing
  less
Pros
Health Benefits
Cons
Taking breaks when you can while on your route, Low pay for the work being done, Not enough drivers/helpers

Job Coach (Current Employee) –  Clear Lake, IASeptember 5, 2017
Working with clients at One Vision , whether at their homes, work services or at their community jobs is a rewarding experience. It is a demanding job but the efforts are well worth it. The culture at One Vision is being part of a team and family. The clients are the best part of the job and there are a lot of great employees and co-workers.
Pros
Flexible with schedule when needed
Cons
Many changes in work enviroment due to government regulations

Not a place for me
Activities Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVAugust 28, 2017
I worked at opportunity village for about 2 months. While i was there i met co-workers that i thought were awesome at what they did with the clients and individuals and they were also very helpful in getting me enriched with the program itself. The admin was the issue. They provide no curriculum for any of the clients that attend opportunity village. They don't go to bat for their employees and could less about what they need. Seems as if they only care about making money off the clients that are there. The employees that work there actually have a passion for the clients they work with and the individuals that are there and it doesn't seem that the higher-ups share that same passion or concern. I really hope that things change because this could be an awesome place and maybe it just the one sight that i worked at but nevertheless things need to change and fast. I wish them the best.
Pros
great co-workers in enable and individuals to be around daily.
Cons
admin at the sight could care less about either.

Career Opportunity Advocate (Current Employee) –  North Las Vegas, NVAugust 24, 2017
Very nice place to work. Lots of room for advancements. Managers are always willing to listen. Team players. The hardest part of the job is learning not to take your job home with you. Whatever happens at work should stay at work.
Pros
free training, free give aways, Nice people, love working with the clients.
Cons
Can be stressful at times. Low pay.

Understaffed making it stressful and difficult
Direct Care Staff (Former Employee) –  North Las Vegas, NVJuly 30, 2017
Most of the clients are engaging and wonderful. Over the course of a day various degrees of assistance are required by these clients. Due to constant understaffing it is hard and stressful to fulfill their required needs. You are subject to physical abuse from some clients when they do not receive the desired attention or response. Other clients are also subject to verbal and physical abuse due to the understaffing. Managers have favorites and not all rules apply to all workers. Part-time personnel only receive their hourly wage, no benefits of any type, no matter how long they have been an employee; while FT employees accumulate PTO, partially paid health insurance and vacation pay accrual after 90 days.
Pros
Self Satisfaction Knowing You Have Made Positive Client Assistance
Cons
Too Many to List

Productive-fun
PSP caregiver (Current Employee) –  Clear Lake, IAJuly 18, 2017
A typical day at work consists of working as a team, team player, and a friend to those with need. I've learned to be thankful for what I have the last year I have been working there. They have opened me up to be comfortable inside of their home. Management can get in the way of caring for those due to short staff and or they dont approve. The work place there is very friendly, welcoming and great. The hardest part of the job is having to work together when short. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to be more than just a staff at the Village, they become family.
Pros
Provide lunch
Cons
Everyday isn't the same. Some are better than others.

The culture working was great as along with many people who are handicapped.
